Default Video Card Fans

Can they be replaced?

On say :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130303

(8800 GT)

My up and coming rig will have a good amount of air moving, but these babies run hot, especially when I get that second one in there.

Where do these mount?

On the card themselves, I imagine, but how?

yes your current Heatsink will come off.. its either held by screws or plastic pieces from the back .. then the new one will go in place..

** I just found the compatability section under the specs of the cards**

Well by taking the plastic crap off, I assume isn't going to be harmful

Taking the plastic isn't harmful but I would wait and see what another CF member would say as I have never replaced the fan or taken a casing off of a 8800 .. just to be on the safe side.
